2013-14 home kitAs reported earlier this week, and without a hint of been-there-done-that irony, it seems that a new era has dawned for Leeds United. With Brian McDermott taking the helm and three new signings joining the squad, there was an air of optimism at Elland Road on Saturday. While it may not have been our finest hour (and a half), we did not leave disappointed as the team registered a 2-1 victory over Brighton.

With 33,000 fans at Elland Road – the highest opening day attendance in a decade – Leeds managed to dominate after Brighton’s opening goal. A match-holding save topped off a great performance from Paddy Kenny and a stellar goal from Luke Murphy – on his debut, no less – in the closing minutes, were highlights of the game. Not only that, but BBC Radio Leeds has reported that GFH Capital is on the brink of buying back Elland Road. There is much cause for celebration for Leeds fans right now, and hopefully this will continue long into the season.

To celebrate the new season kicking off to a great start, we’ve teamed up with Ladbrokes Casino and their ‘Shoot’ slot game to offer one lucky reader a shirt for the new season.

The winner will be chosen at random after this date, and notified by DM. This promotion is open to UK residents only.

Good luck!

    Although we had a lucky escape tonight I think we can take solace in the fact this wasn’t a full strength Leeds side on the pitch. If we had Byram, RossMcC, Austin, Diouf, + the 2 promised signings(If they were done by now) starting against a team like Chesterfield it’d be an open and shut game, we’d conclusively beat such a side. Kudos to Chesterfield though, they’ve proven they’re worthy of being promoted to League 1 if they can do it this season.

      Exactly that Matty, I think at times we were played off the park by them and they were very unlucky not to have come away with something, on a positive note I think Poleon had an outstanding match especially second half and he will definitely be one to watch if he gets the starts this season and Brown scores a cracker who would have thought it.

        If they bring that same determination and passion with them to the league I can easily see them being promoted from league 2. We very easily could of lost this game. We were walking in very thin ice.
